On a reprieve from the SG-5 operative work that leaves daily life such a menial bore, Simon Baptiste is finally heading home to one of Louisiana’s many bayous and the land that he owns – Le Hasard. Among the many ghosts of his pasts and skeletons in his closet, the sad and terrible diffusion of relations between Simon and his cousin King Trahan make any anticipation of this trip border on the negative and filled with undeniable animosity.

Micky knows that escaping New York and her father for a few days is probably the best thing she could do right now. Having made a complete fool of herself in a childish act of rebellion against his decisions regarding her life, Micky knows when to make herself scarce. The unexpected arrival of a Louisiana-stamped note from her best friend, Lisa, is the perfect excuse to skip town. There's no way a little setback will keep multibillion-dollar perfume heiress Michelina Ferrer down.

Unfortunately, the arrival of both Simon Baptiste and Michelina Ferrer on the Louisiana Bayou seems to have a disturbing effect on an unknown foe well-placed to “take care of business.” While neither Baptiste nor Ferrer had ever met before, the disappearance of Micky’s friend Lisa and an attempt on Micky’s life brings the two New Yorkers together in the depths of the swampland. Something foul is brewing in this small Louisiana town, and the culprits behind the present-day crimes are suspiciously entangled in life-altering traumas tied to Simon and King’s pasts.

As Lisa's mysterious disappearance is investigated further, events from the past must be relived to finally uncover the truth so meticulously and craftily buried in deceit, greed, murder, and corruption. When the law is no longer a safe place to turn to and seek protection, what evil can be accomplished with limitless power and no resistance? Simon, King, and Micky must delve into horrors of their painful pasts to find out what happened to Lisa and discover the true motive behind the Bayou’s long-time deadly menace.

The Sg-5 series is good for killing time, and this latest addition is occupying enough to keep readers tuned in from start to finish. Compared to similar series by authors such as Lucy Monroe, Sydney Croft, or Shannon McKenna, Alison Kent offers little competition. Still, No Limits gives readers a great ride with plot development, keeping things interesting with the character relationship-building. A few unforeseen twists keep readers guessing, but there's little difficulty in guessing one’s way through the mystery and figuring out the basics well in advance. This is a light read great for filling time, perhaps to take along on a trip where reading time is in abundance.
